Remove /index.php from joomla 3x, I enable rewrite it removes the /index.php but leads to error 404 please advise except for the home page. Please help fix this.. thanks in advance.
Rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess (as @Midhat said)
htaccess is needed to make your urls friendly. It comes with a ."txt" extension by default.
Make sure your server has mod rewrite on
To enable mod rewrite open your
httpd.conffile (in your server folder) search for
mod_rewrite. If there's any "#" in front of
mod_rewrite, take it out and save the file
Make sure your httpd.conf is correctly configured
it may be hard to find the correct configuration for the
httpd.conffile, so after following the first two steps above, and you still get the error, i suggest you either changing your local server (if it's a local host) or contacting your hosting service to check the server configuration
